Earlier in the year, reality TV star Kim Zolciak’s 5-year-old son Kash had to undergo several surgeries after a dog bit his face, almost blinding the boy. We have learned that the animal to blame for the injury was none other than the family pet! What’s even more shocking is that they decided to keep the dog regardless!
Back in April when the scary accident took place, Zolciak and her husband Kroy Biermann chose not to reveal too many details, and now we know precisely why.
In a brand new interview, however, the couple admitted their rescue dog Sinn was the one to attack Kash.
‘It was a like a bad dream. Our dog Sinn’s heavily trained. Kash’s his favorite. It made absolutely no sense to any of us. This is nothing I ever thought I would be dealing with,’ the woman stated.
Kash and six-year-old KJ were playing outside with Sinn while Kroy was using a leaf blower in the yard.
The animal dislikes the blower, and that is why he was already on high alert, Kroy revealed.
The man’s back was on the boys so when he heard the barking and screaming, he first though the child just got scared but upon turning around, he saw his son covered in blood.
His eye couldn’t be seen so he knew he’d need immediate medical care.

I am so happy to report that Kash is still recovering and so amazingly!! He is the true definition of a pure innocent child ❤ The injuries sustained to his skin are healing up perfectly because of his amazing doctors, nurses, modern medicine, my homeopathic treatments his will and his positive attitude. Kroy, I and his doctors are amazed by his progress. 😍Again he will have no physical problems once he is fully healed and we are confident his mental and emotional state is healing back to its original state as well. He is just truly amazing. I love spending everyday with him 🙊 I could eat him up, (he is still out of school) Thank you again for EVERYONE'S love, support and prayers. They have not gone unnoticed. And I firmly believe they made all the difference. 💋 P.S. the nurse in this pic Danielle walked the halls with me, reassured me and found me a staircase (I avoid elevators) and was so sweet to us! Thank you Danielle (if you are reading this) 😉 GOD is sooo Good!
And even though Kroy wanted to get rid of the dog for good at first, he decided against that idea.
‘I genuinely felt deep rage for what he’d done to my son. I love my dog, and nothing like this had ever happened to me before. But it is my son. I do not love anything more than my flesh and blood. I thought, ‘I do not want to see the dog — he does not get a second chance.’’
However, apparently, Kash and Sinn had already formed an ‘incredible bond’ throughout the years.
‘Kash loves him. We did not want him to live a life with a phobia of dogs. We wanted him to understand it was not his fault,’ the dad explained.
He might have been right to do so considering the boy did not grow scared of the dog and even asked to see Sinn while in the hospital.
Are you shocked they kept the dog?
